Lawmakers from both parties want to use the threat of that deadline to work out a broader package on long-term deficit reduction, with Republicans looking to cut trillions of dollars in federal spending, while Democrats are pushing for a more “balanced approach,” which would include both spending cuts and increased revenue through taxes.
The “balance approach” term for the Democrats is suppose to mean that the Republicans are imbalanced. No entity can simply borrow its way out of debt, so how does “balanced” really fit in here? The federal government is simply out of control and needs to be reined in. Democrats are not only imbalance but warped.

I for one like sucking on the nipple of government entitlements. The warmth and comfort I feel while wrapped in the blanket of welfare,medicare,WIC,SS,public housing,food stamps,2 years of unemployment benefits are pure heaven. The only way I can describe it to all you wagon pullers is the feeling of a warm squishy load wedged between your cheeks. It might not smell great, but it’s warm and easily replaced after it runs down your leg. Hope and Change with a side of fries.
POTUS is really a fear monger. It will be interesting to see who will blink on this one.
